    The Previous Owner put in a quick and cheap 3" Toytec lift. Over time the front has started to sagged significantly and the rear has a cracked leaf or two.

    I'd like to take the truck to a reputable shop to advise me on what I should have them do rejuvenate the lift. I'd like to either fully restore the 3" lift or even go 4-6" depending on costs. I understand that to do it right will require something more significant than spacers; I'm ready for that.

    The only shop I'm aware of in the area is 4wheelparts. I don't know that they're not reputable, but I've heard that they may not be the best option, but I don't know who else.

    I'm the San Francisco Bay Area, specifically the San Jose South Bay, and even more specific Santa Clara.


    :sorry: Please note, by Previous Owner, I mean myself when I was a cheap bastard. I want to do it correct this time.

    Welcome dude, there is a whole community of guys all around you, from SC to San Hoe to Concord, SF and beyond. We have a Mod day coming up in Benicia (bout and 1 1/4 hrs north), on May 5th, check out the link below and introduce yourself and tell us exactly what you have to put on so we can help you. If you have front struts to do, you need to have them mounted on the springs as our shop doesn't have a spring compressor.
